As a daft Brit, I think it's hilarious! :-b

But you probably need to know the story behing the video, and also something of British culture to get the joke.

The song was re-released as a charity record, with one of the UK's top comedians (Peter Kay) miming to Tony Christie, while walking with various other UK celebs. You can see the original here, if you really want!! ... iewer.html

It was number 1 in the UK charts for something like 7 weeks, so was obviously a huge hit. The army guys simply did their own parody of a parody - if you see the original, the army one makes (a little) more sense!!!! :-D

I don’t really get the appeal of this video but since it crashed the British Army’s server there must be something to it.

I think the most disturbing parts of this whole thing is that the British Army a) hosted this video, and b) couldn't handle the hits. There were probably 1,000 terrorists sitting around taking notes on that last part.
